Wait, How Does the PS3 Deal with the PS4's Larger Friends List?

Push Square: "With the launch of the PlayStation 4 next month, there’s a good chance that you’ll have three unique systems each connecting to a single PSN account. That brings with it some headaches, as there are some differences between the devices that will make managing features such as your Friends List more challenging." (PS3, PS4)

I think if you add a friend from the PS4 it won't show up on the PS3. However if you add a friend on the PS3 it will show up on the PS4. Just a guess. Meaning on PS3 you'll be able to see what your original friends are playing on PS4.

@ Neocores...Thats what I just said. Original Firends can see what their friends are doing on PS4.

or maybe we will pick 100 friends and list them a tier 1 friend the rest will go to tier 2 catalogy, and PS3 will display only those in tier 1 list (jk)

Your joke may be reality. It's very possible Sony will create 2 separate lists and that on the PS3 you'll have your regular friend list, but also an option to view your PS4 friend list will show up on it in its own drop down menu.

Either that or Sony will just have to increase the PS3 friend list somehow.

That awful feeling when you find out you're only considered a Tier-2 friend.

Maybe a new firmware update of the PS3 will grant more space for extra friends, dunno... we'll see.

I don't understand why they don't just upgrade the list on the PS3 as well, surely it would be the easiest solution.

PS3 can't handle 2000 friends

'The PS3 can't handle 2000 friends'

I'm talking about a firmware update, the PS3 only used to be able to support 50 friends so surely it's not that difficult to update it again.

I would add search button for the sake of that easy solution and easy to implement *winks winks*

My friends will be so jealous when they see the [PS4] mark when I'm online :D!

2,000 Friends is a lot which sadly I won't be able to fill up... Ever!

Who in the hell is going to have 2000 friends on their list? Needy much? The simple fact that it will link directly to Facebook means that you'll be able to add people that you know for real. That is the way it should be. Much more fun to game with people you really know anyhow.
